Photographer's Note

Hypatian Monastery in Kostroma stands on the shore of Volga River. Monastery was founded in year 1330, in XVII century it become one of the main cloisters in Russia, as it was specially favoured by Romanovs House, the Emperors of Russia. It was a kind of the private monastery for Romanovs before they were elected on the throne in year 1613, and stays like this after that.

Here's a shot of Trinity Cathedral in the monastery, it's the main church there. It's made in year 1650-1652 and it's huge. So huge that I hardly found the POV inside the walls of monastery from which I was able to make a photo of it.
Lot of gold and lovely frescoes inside, and all monastery is being well kept and looks great.
